Feeling the crunch regarding your college application essays? We can help you create winning college application essays! Depending on individual need, we can focus on the personal essay or supplementals. Summer is a great time to get things done and relieve some of that stress before high school starts up again in September!

With years of experience successfully supporting college applicants, we’ve developed a method that yields outstanding essays. Short bursts of brainstorming, freewriting and individual feedback will immediately get you started. With a routine of in-class writing sessions and a bit of writing homework, coupled with timely feedback as students make revisions, we offer individualized guidance and support in crafting an essay that memorably introduces you. Admissions officers read hundreds of essays and we want to be sure that yours will stand out. Work with us and in little more than a week you will have (almost) painlessly produced an essay that presents both your authentic personality and solid writing skills.

Join a small group of students for four 2-hour midday sessions (10:30 to 12:30) and then follow that up with two more individualized rounds of written feedback on drafts and two private online coaching sessions (20 minutes per session). Allowing days off between group sessions works well for students, giving you more time to write independently between sessions and lessening the stress for all involved.

Bruce Johnson has a doctoral degree from Harvard, taught in the Department of Education at Bogazici University for 12 years and recently retired from Tufts University near Boston. He has many years of firsthand undergraduate and graduate admissions committee experience.
